Despite a rocky start, the quality of the online dates is improving. Bachelor #1 was a no-show, Bachelor #2 was interesting if not awkward, and Bachelor #3 was actually the closest I’ve come to having a good date from Nerve.com. He showed up on time, looked like his picture, could keep up a conversation AND… this is the best part of it all… he supports Hillary!!! This alone makes me overlook the fact that he doesn’t drink alcohol (not for AA reasons) or eat red meat. He did say he made an exception for lamb once, so that gave him some extra points in my book.

So another guy from Nerve.com asked me out. This one was smart enough to ask me out to sushi. Which is the fastest way I’ll say “yes” to a date. This one was an improvement over Tuesday night’s date. For starters, he showed up. Major points. Now, here are my notes from the date.
- His profile picture looked 10 years younger. I should have suspected something when his pictures only showed his face. Everything else was cropped out. (more…)
I got home today, walked into my kitchen and was greeted with a big surprise. A humongous cockroach in the kitchen. Now, there are no bugs in my kitchen. No roaches, no ants (knock on wood). This one was huge, and it looked like it was dying. It was lying on its back, with its whiskers sticking out and just chillin. (more…)

One of my favorite things in the world is my Tuesday night spinning class. This ranks on top of my favorite things right next to sushi, chocolate and expensive jeans. I rarely EVER miss my Tuesday night spinning class because A) I love spinning B) I love Adam’s spinning class and C) I need to relieve my stress on the bike especially when I’m experiencing a dry spell. The only times I miss this particular class is if I get out of work too late, when I’m sick, or have a birthday celebration to attend. (more…)

As any respectable pinko-commie-liberal, I’m concerned about how my tax dollars are spent. As a single girl, with good income, no mortgage and no dependents, I pay a lot of taxes. But I always wondered how my tax dollars I spent. And as any good pinko-commie-liberal, I want my tax dollars to go towards the betterment of our society. I want my country to have the best education and health care, to provide for social services, invest in housing development and improve the quality of life for those that need it the most — the homeless, the working poor, the children… you get the point.
On my way back from my Sunday ritual, spinning class, I decided to stop by the farmer’s market in Hollywood. I always try to go to farmer’s market on Sundays, but it rarely happens. So today, I told myself that, if I find a parking spot anywhere near the farmer’s market, I’m going to park and go. (more…)
